JCB is boosting range of asphalt rollers with compact models
JCB has developed two compact asphalt rollers
JCB is broadening its range of asphalt compactors with the addition of the VMT380 and VMT430 models.
These are said to offer high operator visibility, comfort, safety and performance in comparison with other models on the market.
Tapered frames ensure good sightlines while both models are powered by 2.2litre Kohler diesels mounted in the front chassis section and rated at 34.6kW, with large fuel and water tanks that are said to be class leading.
Travel speed is claimed to be 10% higher than competing machines.
Vibration frequency is 66hZ and amplitude is 0.4mm, while vibration can be selected on either front or rear or both drums as required. Both models are offered with a choice of drum widths of 1.3m or 1.4m. The VMT380 weighs either 3.8tonnes or 3.9tonnes while the VMT430 weighs 4.2tonnes or 4.3tonnes, depending on whether the 1.3m or 1.4m drums are fitted.
The VMT380 replaces the earlier VMT390 while the VMT430 replaces the VMT400. The drums can be offset if required while other features include hinged scraper bars and a maintenance free centre joint.
